Black markets often spring up when rationing was effected. These allowed people to trade rationed goods they may not want for one they did.

Rationing was a mean of ensuring the fair distribution of food and commodities when they were scarce. It began after the start of World War Two with petrol and later included other goods such as butter, sugar and bacon. Eventually, most foods were covered by the rationing system with the exception of fruit and vegetables.

Home Defense and War Economy
